This is a sampler scarf I started a while back, just to practice stitches. Lion Brand's Stitch of the Week (http://cache.lionbrand.com/stitchFinder.html) are great for this.

That is seriously a great idea. I'm glad you mailed it to them. Perhaps they'll suggest it to others and show your scarf! What yarn are you using? samm

That's lovely and can I say how impressed I am with the tension (and of others I've seen on here). It looks so solid - really professional!

Hi Lu!

That scarf is beautiful! Here's the scarf pattern that Lion Brand has up on their website called the Road Scarf. Very similar. Great minds think alike!!

Great job!!

Thanks for posting this you've given me a great idea, using stitch samples squares to make a blanket.

They emailed me back saying "Thank you for the idea. We featured a scarf similar to this a few weeks ago." If anyone sees it, I'd like a link so I can see it too.

The yarn is just some Red Heart from Walmart :) I do like Red Heart for scarves, they can really take a beating and it keeps you warm.

Great job!!Ahhhhhhhh! Thanks! Boy, that DOES look like mine, doesn't it?!? But I never saw it before..........besides mine was started over a year ago. Then I REALLY got into knitting and put it away.

Very pretty - I'm in love with that color!The color is Blue Meadow or something like that. I remember "Meadow" in the name.

For the one who loved the color...............I was wrong about the name, it's WINDSOR BLUE! So much for my horrible memory!

I love the scarf. Is it related to the Road Scarf? I'm planning to start on that with some woolease that I got on sale. You can get really good sales on wool in Georgia when it's 95 outside.

I also love the picture of your dog. We have 4 rescued dogs now. We have had the last one for just 2 days. Our sweeties are a terrier mix, a pure bred weimeraner (starved before we took him from the pound), a pure bred brittany spaniel and a collie shepherd. You really can buy love.
